Blood Rebellion Teaser

I stared at my grandmother for a second or two before I let her have it. "He didn't have anything to do with this," I spat. "You did well enough, bringing this on yourselves."
 
"And who are you?" She dismissed me with a contemptuous blink of her beautiful, gold eyes. Kyler and Cleo had those eyes. It might explain the gold flecks in Griffin's eyes, too.
 
"The one who put you here," I answered her question, reining in my temper. One more step and she'd be within range of my claws. That wouldn't do—I had a feeling my father wanted something from her. I hoped it wasn't love or affection—she was incapable of either. She called me an extremely unkind name in the Elemaiyan language. I didn't care. "You will answer all of Daddy's questions honestly, from this point forward," I laid compulsion, and put power in it. I'd probably shocked the hell out of Griffin by calling him Daddy, but we needed to close ranks against this one. She blinked at me a time or two as my compulsion settled over her brain.
 
"You're his daughter." She said it flatly.
 
"Obviously. Daddy, she's all yours." I stepped back and motioned Griffin forward. Garde was at my back, suddenly, his hands on my shoulders while Griffin asked his mother questions.
 
"Who is my father?" That was his first question, and I wanted to weep. I'd only waited forty-eight years to find out who my father was. Griffin was over a hundred thousand, and he still didn't know.

  6. I have two things to say--
    one: cough medicine is nasty-tasting stuff and
    two: I will be hauling ass to make a March 1st release date. Now I have to beg my cover artist to fit me in :)

    1. Sooo...Are we forgiving Griffin for being a *******? Cause I can roll with that, but I'll still be mad about that m'fiyah canceling thing with Merrick. >:/ Jerks.

      Loved the tease! Thanks! Really looking forward to March 1st! Thankfully, Feb is a short month. :-)

    2. Binny, I think Lissa is guarded in her decision regarding his forgiveness (and wisely so) all I can say is stay tuned, there's more story to be told, and not all of it in Blood Rebellion.

  10. These books are amazing! I have read and reread all 6 so far since Christmas. I just finished rereading Blood Queen about 10 minutes ago. I cannot wait for the Blood Rebellion. You are truly a talented author and have kept me intrigued with every title so far. Thank you!!

  13. Great teaser ... just enough to REALLY catch my interest, and then cut it off before I learn anything! I have to agree with casey993 - you ARE evil!

  14. So, given that a main common thread in your stories is the art of the cookie, are you going to add an appendix to a volume which includes Lissa's cookie recipes? :)

    I am definitely looking forward to the Rebellion. :)

    1. Hi, Alfred :)
      That's an interesting concept. I'll have to consider that!

  15. Hi Connie,

    Totally psyched up for Rebellion.

    Question: will Lissa ever try to turn into an animal? Everyone around her turns into something. just doesn't seem fair. :)

    My vote would be for a lioness.

    1. Happy Valentine's Day, Mari!
      I haven't thought about that before, but Lissa has so much power, now, she could probably become any animal she wanted--if she wanted :)

  16. A vampire recipe book would be great. Have tried Lissa's mashed potato recipe and it was really good.

    1. Hi, Pony--hope you're having a wonderful Valentine's Day :)
      Maybe I should think about a companion book, someday, filled with recipes, short stories and biographies, plus the Vampire Rule Book. Something to think about, as time permits :D

  17. We definitely need to see the Vampire Rule Book. Lissa grumped about it so much in Blood Wager. (LOL)

  18. Connie -

    I apologize if you've answered this question already, but I was re-reading the series in preparation for Blood Rebellion's release and I have a question.

    In book 5, Giff is referred to as a he. But at the end of book 6, she is referred to as a she. I assumed that this was because they are all considered "he's" due to the androgynous nature, until they are turned at which point their sex is revealed. Did the change come with the Lissa's knowledge of what Giff would become?

    Thanks!

    1. Hi, Elizabeth!
      That's a great question, and you're very observant! Yes--Lissa can now tell which comesuli will become female and which will be male after the turn. Giff's penchant for being female is shown in Blood Rebellion, in her attachment to Rolfe. More will be revealed in future books :)
      Hope your day is a happy one--
      Connie

  19. I just wanted to be the first (that I know of, at least) to enter a plea that you continue the series after the set of books you've told us about. The story is so enchanting--and addicting--that I'm already going into withdrawal and you haven't even published the next three.

    I really liked Bumble and I know the series will do well but there's something special about the Blood Queen series. I think I can speak for all reading here when I say I hope to read many, many more.

    1. Hi, Librovore :)
      Blood Redemption (#9) comes to a natural conclusion, and sets the stage for another book (which I can't talk about because there are MAJOR spoilers involved). This book is certainly written in the same vein, just told from a different perspective. That book, tentatively titled "Veiled" is very close to completion. At this time, I don't have any new ideas for more books told from Lissa's viewpoint, although if that changes, rest assured I will certainly take that idea and run (or write) with it :) In the meantime, Lissa appears frequently in the High demon series, but again, due to spoilers, I can't say how or when. I promise to keep everyone updated--here, on the website and on my Facebook page. Just hang in there with me, Lissa will not disappear :D
      Hope you're having a wonderful day--
      Connie

  20. I was going though your website yesterday, as I was re-reading the series, and I was wondering if you could post a list of Lissa's mates? I noticed there was lists of other peoples mates, but not one of hers.

    Thank You,
    Ariel

  21. Hi, Ariel!
    I promise to get with my web designer after Blood Rebellion is released and get that list added to the glossary. In the meantime, here it is:

    Lissa's Mates:
    Gavin
    Tony
    Kifirin
    Roff
    Shadow Grey
    Karzac
    Drake
    Drew
    Gabron
    Connegar

    Gardevik Rath and Erland Morphis think they belong, but we'll see how that goes :)

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
